Many RC racers rely entirely on their own backyard tracks or simply racing their friends in their driveways or at local parks, etc. But for those of you who want to get a little more serious and compete with others, you may want to find a more official race track.
Some of you may be saying “um, hi there’s this new thing called the internet where you can find pretty much anything”. But honestly, when I searched for “rc race tracks” on Google, some of the websites were only for specific states or for how to build an RC race track. Not what I wanted. Then I specified “race tracks in WI” on Google for example, there were some different websites that came up and the first one wasn’t even relevant! So I found a few solid resources for those of you looking to get into racing at your local track.
- 1. http://www.therczone.com/tracks/ The RC track locator on this site contains 546 tracks worldwide and is the largest in the world. It lets you choose your state, country, and surface type (on road, off road, etc).
- 2. http://www.rcuniverse.com/community/locator.cfm With a quick login, you can find local tracks, clubs, dealers and more for any type of RC.
- 3. I thought I had another one for you, but the website didn’t work.
So basically I found 2 solid websites for you in order to find a track anywhere in the world. This should save you some time searching everywhere for a site that you’re actually looking for (you’re welcome ).
The other thing you can do is head down to your local hobby shop. Some of them have tracks right on site. If not, the associates at the store will most likely be able to point you in the right direction. This is especially useful if you want to get some opinions of the tracks in your area before you just go to one you found on the internet. Bring a friend your first time and scope it out.
Hope this was able to help you save some time if you plan on getting into racing! Have fun out there!
